Bolstering Automation

Apache I (3rd floor)

Enabling and bolstering automation is a critical component for climbing the rungs of DevOps. Embarking on a DevOps journey is long and perilous, and most will fail if not guided and appropriately resourced. There is no need to reinvent the wheel, many have taken this journey and there is much to learn from the failed and successful attempts. Even with guidance, many will fail, but remember there is much to learn from failure, and it will serve you well to fail early and often. This mindset and type of culture will be necessary for the evolution of an agile team to begin leveraging DevOps.

Are you ready to embark on your DevOps journey? Level-setters, common pitfalls, and surveys should be leveraged to determine journey readiness. DevOps is not just some buzzword that can be adopted as easily as it is said aloud, careful thought, planning, and hard work are a requirement for a successful implementation. Many will need to reevaluate their current processes and revamp them. Well-defined and repeatable processes are the building blocks for automation. Leveraging standards and best practices will ensure that well-defined manual steps can be transformed into automated processes that will drive and bolster automation.
